“Live-Tooning”: gapingvoid does Events, Y’all…

Gapingvoid Does Events – TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2012 from Gapingvoid on Vimeo. We’re doing more and more events these days. I call it “Live-Tooning”… It’s what I do instead of “Public Speaking”.

The gapingvoid Wall at Techcrunch HQ

[Techcrunch and gapingvoid have been friends for a while- since 2006 or so, actually. And here’s the art to prove it, hanging on a wall in the main Techcrunch offices in downtown San Francisco. Those smaller ones are 9″x12″, larger ones are ginormous.  Jeff Sass took the picture while visiting there a couple of weeks […]

Here you go, the cartoon was originally published in the Austin Chronicle, while I was attending University of Texas.

Innotribe

As followers of my Twitter stream will know, last week I was in Toronto, live-cartooning at Innotribe 2011. Innotribe happens every year at Sibos, the ENORMOUS international banking and financial conference put together by SWIFT. Chris Skinner wrote a nice overview here, with the gapingvoid photstream over here. My job was to “live-toon” drawings over the […]

You don’t want to change the world…

Everybody wants to be on the winning team. Some people don’t care what team they’re on, to paraphrase Bob Dylan, so long as they’re winning. I’ve been around those people all my life. Most were forgotten, by me and everybody else. Some people don’t mind if they win or lose, as long as they don;t […]

Testimonials

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

The New Republic
Lydia Depillis

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

Len Schlesinger
Former President, Babson College

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

Tony Hsieh
CEO, Zappos

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
